Ein fesselnder Roman über die Traumfabrik Hollywood und die letzten drei Lebensjahre des berühmten amerikanischen Schriftstellers Francis Scott Fitzgerald. Mit Der große Gatsby hatte er Weltruf erlangt. Doch das ist lange her. Als er einundvierzigjährig in Hollywood ankommt, scheint seine Alkoholsucht unbezähmbar, seine Frau Zelda lebt, mit einer offenbar unheilbaren bipolaren Störung, in einer psychiatrischen Klinik in Montgomery, das Verhältnis zu seiner Tochter Alabama ist schlecht. Er zieht in die Villenanlage Garden of Allah, wo sich abends eine muntere Schar aus den umliegenden Hollywood Hills am Pool trifft: Humphrey Bogart, Valentino, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson, die Marx Brothers, u. a. Man ist, beginnt man dieses Buch zu lesen, gleich mitten drin in dieser farbigen Welt der Stars, im Reich der Superreichen und Erfolgreichen, um Zeuge zu werden, wie Fitzgerald sich als zweifelnder Beobachter zu behaupten versucht und in der Klatschreporterin Sheilah Graham noch einmal eine große Liebe findet. Eine universelle Geschichte über den Kampf des Künstlers um sein kreatives Potential, gegen die Nichtigkeit des Lebens und die Macht des Todes, aber auch über die persönliche Tragik eines Mannes, der alles hatte, Reichtum, Ruhm, Glück, alles verlor und am Ende seines Lebens um seine persönliche Integrität kämpfen muss. O'Nan macht daraus ein packendes Drama. Und dazu die farbige Szenerie, die Stars, die Gelage am Hotelpool, die nächtliche Brandung des Ozeans bei Mondschein, die Filmkulissen in den Studios, wo sogar die Palmen aus Pappe sind.

„Kafka am Strand" ist der ungewöhnlichste Entwicklungs- und Liebesroman, den wir bisher von Japans Kultautor gelesen haben: zeitlos und ortlos, voller Märchen und Mythen, zwischen Traum und Wirklichkeit – und dabei voller Weisheit. „Als mein fünfzehnter Geburtstag gekommen war, ging ich von zu Hause fort, um in einer fernen, fremden Stadt in einem Winkel einer kleinen Bibliothek zu leben. Wenn ich alles der Reihe nach erzähle, brauche ich dafür wahrscheinlich eine Woche. Wenn ich stattdessen zunächst nur die wichtigen Punkte aufführe, dauert es ungefähr genauso lange. Das klingt vielleicht wie der Beginn eines Märchens. Aber es ist kein Märchen. In keinem Sinne.“ Der Erzähler dieser Zeilen heißt Kafka Tamura und seine Reise führt in Wirklichkeit aus der realen Welt hinaus in sein eigenes Inneres, entlang an den Ufern des Bewusstseins. Eine schicksalhafte Prophezeiung, der Geschichte von Ödipus gleich, lenkt Kafkas labyrinthischen Weg. „Kafka am Strand“ heißt das Bild an der Wand von Saeki, der rätselhaften Leiterin jener kleinen Bibliothek. Und „Kafka am Strand“ heißt auch der Song aus der Zeit, als Saeki noch Pianistin war und einen jungen Mann leidenschaftlich liebte, sie waren ein Paar wie Romeo und Julia. Die Wege des Erzählers Kafka kreuzen sich auf geheimnisvolle Weise mit den ihren und denen eines alten Mannes, der die Sprache der Katzen versteht und Spuren folgt, die in eine andere Welt weisen.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Mariah Stewart comes a captivating and heartwarming novel in her beloved Chesapeake Diaries contemporary romance series—perfect for fans of Barbara Freethy, Robyn Carr, and Susan Mallery. Carly Summit’s name couldn’t be more fitting, since in life she always lands on top. She grew up wealthy and privileged in a tony Connecticut town, opened her own gallery in New York City, and is about to make art world history displaying previously unknown works by a prominent twentieth-century painter. No wonder she possesses a can-do attitude that can’t be soured. Ford Sinclair is another story. A military career in war-torn Africa, where he witnessed unspeakable violence and suffering, has left him haunted and deeply cynical. Now he’s looking for a way to forget and a place to belong. He hopes to find both back home in St. Dennis. When Carly is forced to move the premiere of her new exhibit from her Manhattan gallery to St. Dennis, and Ford agrees to temporarily take over the town’s paper, the two cross paths. While Ford is confounded by Carly’s unflappable good cheer, he can’t help being drawn to her. And undaunted by Ford’s restless heart, Carly sees a man worth caring for. But when a late-night phone call sends Ford back to Africa, Carly’s left to wonder if the pull of the past and its ghosts will prove stronger than the promise of their future together. Advance praise for On Sunset Beach “Mariah Stewart’s rich characterization, charming setting, and a romance you’ll never forget will have you packing your bags for St. Dennis.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr From the Paperback edition.

A “rich, sometimes heartbreaking” (Dennis Lehane) novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last years in Hollywood Look out for City of Secrets coming from Viking on April 26, 2016 In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald was a troubled, uncertain man whose literary success was long over. In poor health, with his wife consigned to a mental asylum and his finances in ruins, he struggled to make a new start as a screenwriter in Hollywood. By December 1940, he would be dead of a heart attack. Those last three years of Fitzgerald’s life, often obscured by the legend of his earlier Jazz Age glamour, are the focus of Stewart O’Nan’s gorgeously and gracefully written novel. With flashbacks to key moments from Fitzgerald’s past, the story follows him as he arrives on the MGM lot, falls in love with brassy gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, begins work on The Last Tycoon, and tries to maintain a semblance of family life with the absent Zelda and daughter, Scottie. Fitzgerald’s orbit of literary fame and the Golden Age of Hollywood is brought vividly to life through the novel’s romantic cast of characters, from Dorothy Parker and Ernest Hemingway to Humphrey Bogart. A sympathetic and deeply personal portrait of a flawed man who never gave up in the end, even as his every wish and hope seemed thwarted, West of Sunset confirms O’Nan as “possibly our best working novelist” (Salon).

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER By the time psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware reached the school the damage was done: A sniper had opened fire on a crowded playground, but was gunned down before any children were hurt. “Virtually impossible to put aside until the final horrifying showdown.”—People While the TV news crews feasted on the scene and Alex began his therapy sessions with the traumatized children, he couldn’t escape the image of a slight teenager clutching an oversized rifle. What was the identity behind the name and face: a would-be assassin, or just another victim beneath an indifferent California sky? Intrigued by a request from the sniper’s father to conduct a “psychological autopsy” of his child, Alex begins to uncover a strange pattern—it is a trail of blood. In the dead sniper’s past was a dark and vicious plot. And in Alex Delaware’s future is the stuff of grown-up nightmares: the face of real human evil.
